TUSD offers ways to help comfort children

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Unified School District has posted an article meant to help children cope with a national tragedy. It's not specific to last week's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, but the same guidelines apply.

The handout was written by the National Association of School Psychologists.

It begins by saying, "Whenever a national tragedy occurs, such as terrorist attacks or natural disasters, children, like many people, may be confused or frightened. Most likely they will look to adults for information and guidance on how to react."

There is advice for parents, schools, and adults.

The handout is only three pages long and takes just a few minutes to read.

It's posted on the TUSD website.
